THELMA Premieres New “Stranger Love” Video + New Track “Sway”

Thelma, the musical alias of Brooklyn’s Natasha Jacobs, shared two previews of her forthcoming second album The Only Thing today, releasing new track “Sway” as well as a video for the wistful album opener “Stranger Love.” Tiny Mix Tapes premiered the songs today and interviewed Jacobs about the process of making the record while undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. “This record, even though it has a lot of sad lyrics, I just wanted it to be really fun to play,” says Jacobs. “I feel like I also let that come alive with my vocals. I was a lot more playful, and I was taking on fun characters. I guess I just really wanted to enjoy playing these songs… 
 I really stopped focusing on sounding good and just focused on capturing the emotion that I wanted.”



The Only Thing, which also features the previously released single “Take Me To Orlando,” is out February 22 and is available for pre-order  here.
